It'd be nice if we could associate our SO accounts so that new questions that we ask could show up in Google Buzz.

According to the Google Buzz documentation, all you need to do is add something like this to the feed:

<link rel="me" type="text/html" href="http://www.google.com/profiles/your.username"/>

Edit: It seems there is currently a "me" link on the website tag in the profile page, which can be picked up.

In addition, you can make chains in the social graph: If you link to your website from Stack Overflow, and then link to your Google profile from your website, this will allow Buzz to pickup Stack Overflow as a content source. (I think you have to include all stages of the chain as links on your profile though.)

Well, you can start by making sure you're using your Google Profile as your OpenID, which we already fully endorse and support:
